Now what about my face!!??

AnaMariaAnaMaria Posts: 11Registered Users
I am in my first week of CG and noticing a huge difference in my hairs health and condition and now I am worried about my overall look!!!

I am in my mid 40's and now I need to get my over all health to match my young youthful bouncy wavy hair!

My concerns are with my skin and want to know what are we ladies using?

I have combination skin, use foundation to even out my skin tone. Use moisturizer at night and during day.

Can someone point me in the direction to start a natural beautiful face?

Thanks!

    Hi,

    I have age spots, crows feet, large pores. I wash my face with St. Ives black head scrub once a week. I moisturized daily with Avon rejuvenate.

    I just noticed that my hair appearance is changing and do not want to scare anyone when i turn around and someone is surprised. Does that make sense?

    I'm 40. Things I always do for my skin:

    1) cleanse twice daily
    2) apply moisturizer twice daily - find the best night creme you can and use it every night (I said best and not most expensive...Olay products are fantastic for the price...Arbonne has a night creme in their anti-aging line that rocks - costs an arm and leg but worth it if you can afford it). Daytime moisturizer should have sunscreen
    3) wear sunglasses (prevents squinting) - better yet wear a hat if you're going to be out in the sun for a prolonged period of time
    4) get at least six hours of sleep

    Things I never do:

    1) go to bed with makeup on
    2) over-cleanse my skin - this produces excess oils. I used to do this and thought my skin was oily of course. I received my first facial in like forever and my skin wasn't oily for a week straight. I went back to the specialist and she explained that my skin was out of balance.
    3) smoke

    I used to use Clinique for my skin and it always worked great. I now use the ShiMa facial products at the Scott Miller Salon here in Rochester NY and they're fab also.

    Also, watch what you eat - whatever you put in your body will show up on your face, both good and bad.

    I would add - drink plenty of water.

    If you drink coffee, tea or coke: try to eliminate them as caffeine is not a friend for the skin.

    Also, eat lots of fruit and veggies. And always, always use sunscreen!
